Found a bottle of this in the cellar .
A great wine first released in 1964 .Vineyards planted in 1865 in Western Victoria,although this is from younger plantings in the 1930s.
Current release about $48 if you buy 6 . I don't buy many wines over $40 but this is a great example of regionally authentic wine.
A better buy any day of the week than the overhyped ,over done,over oaked stuff at $100 from the trendy wineries.
This shiraz is very elegant&refined . Not that big hairy chested style that comes out of the Barossa Valley,nothing wrong with that either but its nice to have a range.
This will be spicy,peppery,red & black fruits medium bodied.Its breathing now.
Seppelts make a Sparkling Shiraz,serve chilled . You got to try it to understand it.
We will have kangaroo fillet ,its marinating in some malbec ,garlic,cbp,EVO ,splash of balsamic,rosemary
Hard & fast on the cast iron griddle plate served rare.
I will post some photos shortly.
